TOPEKA – Kansas lawmakers plan to leave for their annual three-week spring break Friday.
First, however, they’ll mount one more attempt to resurrect two coal plants rejected by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.
Both the House and Senate expect to take up the contentious issue Thursday.
The legislation would eliminate the discretionary power a state regulator used to reject the plants in 2007. State Health and Environment Secretary Rod Bremby cited carbon emissions in his refusal to grant a permit to Sunflower Electric Power Corp. to build two coal-fired plants in Western Kansas.
